Olympus SZ-14

 

The travel zoom compact is still proving popular and Olympus is building a raft of small-bodied, big-zoom, low-cost cameras for 2012. Setting sail in the wake of the SP-620UZ ‘Ultra Zoom' we reviewed a few weeks back (16 megapixels and 21x optical...

Broad focal range, relatively compact dimensions, good value pricing, reasonably consistent performance from shot to shot

Scroll wheel at the back is very slippery and it’s hard to arrive at the setting you want without much back and forth, battery life is so-so

The 14 megapixel, 24x optical zoom Olympus SZ-14 has the double whammy of a broad focal range yet a value-added price tag with which to sell itself, and it largely succeeds on both points.

Olympus SZ-14 review

 

A 14MP 24x superzoom camera with HD video for under £200

24x zoom range ; Effective image stabilisation ; Easy to use ; Thin

Proprietary USB connection ; No manual exposure ; Only 720p HD video ; Slippery finger grip

Sitting mid-way up the Olympus range of travel-friendly compact cameras, the Olympus SZ-14 sports a good range of features for a pocket-friendly price. A 14-megapixel CCD sensor should provide ample resolution, even for large prints.

A massive 24x zoom and an extremely competitive price, but the sensor doesn't pull its weight and image quality suffers

Olympus TG-82083/100

Lots of zoom for the price, USB battery charge, movie image stabilisation

Picture quality

The Olympus SZ-14 is likely to appeal to you if you are looking for lots of lens power without paying out for one of the top of the range cameras in this sector. By dropping some of the more advanced features Olympus have kept the price down. There is...

Olympus SZ-14 Review

 

Travel zoom digital cameras are a bridge between point-and-shoots and mega-zoom cameras. They are small enough to easily fit into the pocket and offer a raft of features that allow users to capture great shots.

The Olympus SZ-14 retails with a 4GB SD card for Rs. 16,990, which is the MRP. Go out in the market and you should be able to buy it for a few hundred rupees less, along with a pouch. Some online shopping websites are selling this camera for less than...

Starting with the key features, the lens is quite wide at 25 mm. This favours capturing full body portraits and large groups without moving too much away. It also helps capturing wide landscapes and panoramas without taking too many shots. The lens...

Olympus SZ-14 Review

 

The Olympus SZ-14 is a pocketable 14-megapixel travel-zoom camera offering a 24x optical zoom with a focal range of 25-600mm, TruePic III+ processing engine, sensor-shift image stabilisation, “Advanced Face Detection” and “Shadow Adjustment”...

The 14 megapixel, £199 Olympus SZ-14 comes up trumps for anyone wanting a very affordable big zoom camera that at the same time is compact enough to slip into a trouser or jacket pocket in its dormant state. The negatives are that image quality, whilst...
